is a contributor to and ryan grim, d.c. bureau chief for "the huffington post." welcome to all of you. i'm glad you're watching again ryan behind you on the screen. professor peterson, we saw a lot of the president this weekend, a lengthy interview given to the new republic and that interview with hillary clinton on "60 minutes." i see republicans grumbling about that interview. is that because it made democrats seem like mature, well-mannered, adults who are trying to get something done? >> yeah. for all of their critique about what they perceived as being a softball interview, have you ever seen a republican politician on a fox news interview? certainly there's a double standard there in their mind. at the end of the day here, i think that the president and secretary clinton being in the same space at the same time is an important sort of sense for the democratic party going forward. one of the president's support of this secretary of state and what she's done in terms of all the travel and all the impact she's had internationally, but, two, it is looking forward a little bit, as mu
default. and essentially this bill does that. and if i might say to mr. ryan, we're on the same floor. we talk to each other a lot anyway. i think it will be helpful in regular order if there were a budget brought to the floor of the house that had bipartisan support and was a product of regular order with strong bipartisan support in the budget committee and on the floor. thank you. >> thank you very much. >> we look forward to your support. \[laughter] >> mr. ryan. >> participation. >> a new issue has just been brought up by the gentleman and that is perhaps the timing, do you believe that this is timely and that you've given people an opportunity rather than waiting until the last minute and thus getting to a deadline and having to react? >> mr. levin and i are friends. >> he and i are friends. >> our intention, as before, is to write a committee mark, bring it to the committee, entertain probably at the 40 or so amendments, some of which we've taken in the past, and then to bring a product out of committee. there may be irreconcilable differences. that's the way things ought to be. th
. chairman paul ryan has worked hard with the budget committee to outline the kind of reforms we would put in place to bring real fiscal responsibility here in washington. and the american people understand that you can't continue to spend money that you don't have. it's time for us to come to a plan that will, in fact, balance the budget over the next 10 years. it's our commitment to the american people and we hope the senate will do their budget as they should have done over the last four years. >> good evening. as the speaker said, our conference will look to vote on a measure tomorrow that will temporarily extend the debt ceiling so that we can see the senate actually begin to do its job. for several years now, i think it's about four, the senate has not passed a budget. and all we're saying is, if the president and the senate -- if this country needs to incur more debt, senate, please show us your plan to repay that debt. please show us your plan to control spending. it's about time that we come together, do our work, the american people expect no less. that's why we'll insist on the
myself with the remarks of my colleague, mr. ryan. but i would also mention the caveat that has gotten a bit of attention is the no-pay clause without having the senate or the house, either respective chamber, not pass the budget and whether or not that meets the constitutionality, the confines of the 27th amendment. i'm not a constitutional attorney. i am not an attorney of any type. we've -- our committee has looked at this quite a bit on our side. we think that placing the members' pay in escrow until such time as that particular chamber passes a budget is constitutional. it meets the constitutionality of the 27th amendment. as long as we -- the member actually is paid by the end of the 113th congress. there's been some questions. somebody asked me just on the floor actually for instance -- let's say, you know, x amount of times passed before the payment would be made whether or not that congress should be -- whether or not the escrow account would be accruing interest for the members and if the interest is not accrued, would that be a problem with the 27th amendment? but interest o

ryan phenomenon is actually if you are a republican politician in washington or in the country as a whole, there is a real percentage in being associated with serious, substantive policy ideas that other politicians are not talking about. one of the biggest problems the party has -- i disagree with you a little bit on the standing before history thing because i think that is sort of all the republicans did for two years of obama. it goes to the question occurs -- you contain multitudes, so you are circling, but your point about -- >> [inaudible] >> yeah, but your point about not having an alternative to dodd-frank. republicans were very good at saying there were going to make obamacare obama's waterloo and stop these things in their tracks, and when they did not, they did not have something else to say, but one person did have something else to say was paul ryan, and he was rewarded for it with all levels of media attention, massive popularity within the republican party, and the vice presidential slot on the national ticket. when i look at other rising stars in congress and ar

did this now rather than waiting until the very end because, mr. ryan, i don't even know -- and you don't have to respond to this -- but i don't know i just can't do that any more. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. in defense of me asking you three or four as it were to come up here, i'm delighted that we did this now rather than waiting until the very end because, mr. ryan, i don't even know -- and you don't have to respond to this -- but i don't know what day we have to have it ready. and so i viewed that as committee chairman, speaking with each other, including our republican leadership, that we were trying to do the correct thing and to make sure the administration read us as clear. this is not a poison pill. this would be something that the senate would have to agree to and public comments out of the senate by senate democrats have indicated the willingness to accept it. >> right. that's one of the reasons we are doing it now because we don't want to bring it to brinksmanship. the statement of administration policies, snap, we use acronyms around here, we don't know

the gentleman representing the ways and means committee, mr. ryan, who's also -- paul ryan, chairman of the house budget committee, in testimony said that he intended to make sure that he would produce a bill exactly supporting what we are trying to do here today and would bring that to the floor as would be faithful in doing that. look, maybe people are upset that we're putting their pay at risk. maybe people are upset because it wasn't their idea, but the bottom line is is that paul ryan, john boehner, eric cantor, the rules committee yesterday said we think it's a good bill and we were joined bihari reid, the senate majority -- joined by harry reid, the senate majority leader. when the senate majority leader agrees with the house republican leadership and join with them in trying to make sure that we get our job done, i think that's a rare day. i think that's a good day when we can work together, when we can bring legislation that the senate openly welcomes and might i add, the president of the united states, president obama would sign this legislation. and he said so in the stat

[applause] when congressman ryan was picked as mitt romney's running mate last year, he became a subject of fascination. everything about him, extending even to his workout routine which is the p90x workout routine. and for those of you who aren't fit enough to have a workout routine, it sounds like it's some advanced piece of military weaponry -- [laughter] or if you happen not to work out an hour every day before breakfast, the p90x, from what i understand, involves this whole theory is you confuse your muscles, as they call it, by constantly trying a new and different workout every day. and we have evidence that paul ryan is very loyal to this workout regime because, actually, his most innovative workout has been caught on tape and broadcast very broadly. i'
, like jfk used to years ago. on "meet the press," former vice presidential candidate paul ryan referred to last month's newtown tragedy as a watershed moment. >> it's our worst nightmare, something like this happening. let's go beyond just this debate and make sure we get deeper. what's our policy on mental illness? what's going on in our culture that produces this kind of thing? >> reporter: and for its part, congress will hold its first hearing on gun violence, lester, this wednesday. one other note, by the way, about the president's interview with the new "republic," one one week before the super bowl, the president weighing in on football, if he had a son, we have to think long and hard before letting him play to the game, referring to the violence in the sport. >> peter, thank you. >>> still in washington, the education department is taking action to make sure disabled school children are not shut out from school sports programs. nbc's chief education correspondent rehema ellis has that story. >> reporter: it was a big week for 13-year-old owen grosser. get in there. >> reporter: s

, this is a tough thing. the house did that, paul ryan did a budget that would a tough budget that would make some tough choices. and so they were attacked in the election. how, threes horrible people, want to throw all people off the cliff and that kind of thing. and it was irresponsible. while during this entire process, the united states senate was in direct violation of federal law that required us to bring up a budget and they didn't bring it up because it would be foolish, footish politically, because you have to take tough -- foolish politically, because you have to stand up and take tough votes, members have to be analyzed. how much are you really going to raise the death taxes? oh, is that going to change the debt course, this latest $600 billion tax increase, is that going to change the debt course on america? no, really, it's not. our deficit last year was about $1,080,000,000,000, $1.1 trillion. how much was this tax increase, $600 billion? that's $60,000 a year. so instead of $1.1 trillion in deficit, our deficit would have been $1,020,000,000,000. is that going to fix our problem? it

know, very brave ambassadors like ryan crocker, one of our very best, who it would be difficult to say, ryan, you can't go do this even though you decided you should do it. what we're trying to do is create a more ongoing discussion between our ambassadors, our bureaus back in the state department who are regional experts, and our security people so that at the very least no ambassador is taking an unnecessary risk, however that is defined. >> with regard to ambassador stevens, certainly it was brave of him to go to benghazi on the date he did. i have to ask you honestly, though, was there anything in his itinerary on the 10th or 11th that required his personal presence? >> he certainly thought so, congressman he did, of course, discuss this with his own security people. we do have regional security officers in these posts. they are the ones that an ambassador will turn. to he believes it was important for him to go to benghazi, there were a number of meetings that he was holding and some public events that he had on his schedule and you know, he was someone who really believed strongl
wyden worked with the house budget committee chairman paul ryan to develop a similar proposal in the 112th congress. so while there may be some resistance to this particular idea, it has enjoyed bipartisan support. and finally, number five, we need to strengthen medicaid for patients and states through realistic reforms. setting per-capita limits on federal medicaid spending would put the medicaid program on a sustainable budget, and when combined with increased flexibility for patient-centered reforms at the state level, would reduce costs and improve patient care across the board. and as with other ideas i have mentioned, this is a bipartisan proposal. in 1995, president clinton introduced a medicaid reform plan that included a per-capita cap on federal medicaid spending. at that time, all 46 democratic senators, including several that are still serving today, signed a letter to president clinton expressing support for this proposal. in addition, in october of last year, former democratic senate majority leader tom daschle publicly expressed support for per-capita caps on medicaid spen
